COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber-gold in color, softly floral in aroma and roundly malty in flavor, Baird Numazu Lager strikes a perfect balance between complexity and drinkability. The smooth lager character is accentuated by a long period (four months) of post-packaging cold conditioning. The pinpoint natural carbonation that is achieved during this long period of conditioning and maturation ensures that the last sip is a fresh and effervescent as the first.

360ml brown bottle. Brassy golden colour, bit of haze, fat white head with tight bubbles. Good lacing. Nose has nice toasty malt, bread, hay. Just a bit of sweetness there. In the mouth the beer has a nice maltiness, more hay notes, a bit toasty. Light grassy bitterness. Grassy aftertaste, a bit of grain, bread too. Light body, smooth almost creamy mouthfeel, well carbonated without being fizzy. Solid lager, very drinkable.

Hazy deep amber beer, good white head. Palate is light and dry with a crisp trailing edge. Mild malt, touch of soft cream. Not very lager like in character. Mild citrus before the softish and semi dry finish. Nicely joined up and pretty quaffable, but more like a pale ale.

brokensail (13270) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood Brewing. Light amber/dark orange pour with a white head. There’s a lot of bread and toasted malt. A nice malty aroma and some floral hops. There is a really nice bready malt flavor to it. Some toast, caramel, and dough. Floral and slightly grassy. A hint of apple esters and straw. Nice.

Crisp hops and nice pale malts make this lager really refreshing. Floral, light sweetness from the malts, and some herbs in the aroma and flavor. I really thought this was an excellent choice for a warm afternoon.

Bottle - Reasonable amber giolden with nice head retention. Aroma of a little perfume and tropical fruit notes. Reasonable hop bitterness from start to finish which lingers well after. Not sure of it’s Vienna qualities but very nice drinking....

Amber brew with a large bubbly light tan head that leaves plenty ’o lacing - the body has lots of suspended micro particles hanging around. The aroma is fresh, fruity and has ample sweet caramel but it’s mostly the fruit that holds this up. Some biscuit, lots of floral notes, thick rich fruit with a hint of spice somewhere in the distance. Very nice and fresh and appealing nose. This has a wonderful taste with some sort of unique twist. NIce spice and soft citrus with hints of herbal and pine - more of a pine feel I’d guess, caramel, mild to medium bitterness and hey, I just got that classic vienna malt taste - it snuck in on the end of a sip over half the way into the bottle. Good body, plenty of rich malts and a mild spice that kept my taste buds alert. Me likey. On the very end of the aftertaste there is the vienna. Very yummy beer and very well put together with a good variation of flavour changes and a good mouth feel. NIce.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3062) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2013
5.2% On tap at the Numazu Taproom, part of the 800 yen sampler. Quite an orange gold for a lager but with perfect clarity. An earthy mild spicy aroma that makes me think Saaz hops. Medium bodied, very well balanced but more malty than Tenjingura’s Pilsner. Then again this is a lager so it shouldn’t be a surprise. Really good stuff, I need to try this next summer on a hot day.

Bottle at Craft, Bangkok. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light zesty citrus hop. That flavour is moderate bittet with a fresh grassy citrus palate. Moderate to light bodied witn average carbonation.

willisread (834) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 27, 2015
On tap at Naka-meguro taproom. Golden straw color with a nice soapy head. Aromas of peach, fig and melon with hints of floral. Taste is more of the same with bready malts pairing with the hops. Clean and crisp and lightly sweet on the palate. Light to medium body. Nice and refreshing finish.

Draught at their Shuzenji brewery. Clear gold with a big head that disappears quickly. Hoppy floral aroma. Nice dry finish with some fruity notes.
